Thanks Carl.

This little mill will have a ground floor of stone and an upper floor of log construction. My
first thought was to make the entire structure from balsa foam. In doing some experimenting I
found that while the lower section of stone will work fine, the upper log section did not look as
good. I found that making the logs from balsa foam and gluing them to s foam core form was
both easier to do and looked much more realistic.

This is the balsa foam base to be carved to represent stone.



This is the foam core upper section to be modeled as log construction.

Bob,

Another creative project in the works. The variety of materials you use in your modeling is impressive.

It took Greg a full fifteen minutes to log another pun.

Bob,
Another neat project for the forum members to enjoy.
This build should teach us all some new tricks!

Dave, Bob never does a run of the mill job!
Always a new trick or two to learn from the Amazing Santos.

Wow, thanks guys, all of you, for he very nice posts.

I am skipping around between 1 to 1 scale jobs and 1/24 scale jobs and also jumping around between
the various parts of this structure. Hope to have a few photos soon.

Bob

PS. I love Mike's pun about Greg taking 15 minutes to get a pun out!!

Okay... I admit it, I was a bit slow.
I better put my nose to the grindstone now, with speedier pun responses from now on!

Kevin and Greg, thanks for your posts.

Here are a couple of photos of the stone part with the stones carved into it. Carved is really not a
good term but I'm not sure what to call it. Inscribed is better I guess. The softer balsa foam was used.
It will get two coats of Gesso which will fill in the lines between stones a bit to look better in my view.
It also had some unevenness added by pressing the surface with broken rock before inscribing the stone detail.

Bob,

You're laying a good foundation for your mill. Nice rockwork.

Mike

The stone foundation looks good Bob. What tool did you use to emboss the foam?
